JMerritt (1792) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2005
On tap at Clybourn brewpub, served in a massive weizen glass. Yellow-brown in color, very hazy, with a medium-sized white head. Very strong banana/plantain aroma, rounded out by toffee, caramel, and black pepper. Wheat, rye, caramalized banana, and cloves in the flavor. A tad light on the palate, with a rather light and slightly watery finish. Still, a rather solid hefe.

Banana chips. Light, malty, sweet. Needs more hops. This is highly drinkable. Didn’t seem very wheaty, or close to style. But this is worth checking out.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2005
This has a strong yeasty aroma, almost smelling like dishwater. Looks good, a cloudy gold body with a tall rocky head. Good lacing. The flavor’s not very complex, mainly a lemony flavor with a bit of banana - not the usual stronger fruit aroma with cloves that one gets in many hefeweizens. Still, nice on a hot day.

Had this for the first time by accident. They brought out the new sampler with this in place of the Saison. Spicey and brown. Cloves, banana, it’s all there. A bit tart. Pretty good example of a classic German style, I suppose.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Smells and looks heavily yeasty. The bottom of the keg perhaps. Bananas and bubblegum, some apple, minimal clove. Taste is refreshingly wheaty with accompanying esters, but the yeast makes for a thick mouthfeel and a bready afterburp. Hmm.

On tap at wrigleyville...Poured a hazy golden almost a light brown with a small but thick white head. Big, heavy banana nose with subtle vanilla undertones. Flavor is more citrus than the nose, with spicy, banana notes also present. A great summer brew with definite session potential.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Dirty yellow body topped with a dense white head. Nice lacing. Big banana/wheat nose. Very rich mouthfeel. Full of rich wheaty flavors, banana bread, and other light fruit. Nie Hefe.

On cask @ GI Clybourn. Poors a cloudy light brown/dark yellow with a creamy head. Aroma of bananas, berries, apples, cloves. It’s a fruit salad in a pint glass! Sweet fruity flavor with some pleasant spicines. Banana notes, subtle hoppiness. Goes down creamy, velvety smooth (that would be the cask..) An excellent summer refresher that’s best sampled on cask.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Beautifully cloudy, deep orange/yellow in color with a thin creamy head. Aroma rides high with fried, dried banana chips, anise, cloves and vanilla. Taste comes in as more lemony and yeasty. Light croissants, pepper and Orange Dream soda round out the flavor. A little thin with a creamy interjection. Decent.
